THE PERFECT MURDER

by | Read by Victor Garber with Michael Patrick McGrath, Lynn Redgrave, et al.

Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1992

Tim plots "the perfect murder" of his adulterous wife by indicting his once best friend who is now her lover. He invites five authors to perfect his plan. Each author, narrated by a different actor, responds and then critiques the others. Victor Garber's Tim has a condescending tone which one must endure. But Josef Sommer uses a clear and highly listenable voice for Westlake's letter. George S. Irving has good vocal quality and execution (employing a diabolical laugh and second voice) for Lovesay's response. John Randolph Jones employs a Texas accent to outline Hillerman's murder. Lynn Redgrave has a passionate, adamant and almost mothering tone for Caudwell's plan. Michael Patrick McGrath's presentation leans toward montone and is least successful. A unique format and entertaining listen for those who enjoy mysteries. M.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 92]
